We are drawing near to the end of meteorological winter and as it approaches, the temperatures want to remind us we’re still in it. As of now, we’re still running much warmer than we should be. Most locations sit in the low to middle 50s with our southeastern counties touching the low 60s. This will be short-lived as the cold air is looming on the other side of a cold front.

Rain showers have taken a backseat to cloud coverage across Kentucky as the warm front has passed. The next precipitation feature will be the rain shield comes in with the cold front. The rain showers will hit around the morning hours and last into the afternoon. Temperatures will make it to the low to middle 40s tomorrow before dropping drastically behind the front. Expect a cold and breezy day Wednesday along with rain. As the air temperature begins to near the freezing mark, snow will start to mix down with the rain. We’ll end the day with isolated snow showers going into the Wednesday-Thursday overnight. Accumulation is expected to be minor. The winter chill will stick around with us through the end of the week and will keep snow as a precipitation player with a late-week clipper system.
